Hi tazthecat, can you please run the command:
apport-collect 368081

Ideally this command should be run straight after the crash happens because then there is still a record of the crash in the xorg.log file. In most cases it will also work fine to run it on the first login after the crash but the best thing is to login from another machine using ssh while the crashed machine is still at the GDM login prompt.

Anyway, even if you rebooted several times already please run the above command so we can see what hardware you have and sort the bug properly. Thanks.

Please try 180.51: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=1985816
One of the release highlights was a fix for an X server crash visiting certain web pages.

I've posted a new version of the -nvidia driver to our xorg-edgers PPA,
would you mind testing it either on Jaunty or Karmic and see if it
resolves this bug?
